Description

This course will take place in food&lab in the CAB building (same location as Social 3 taught by Irina & Tim), except for the lesson on May 1st: it will take place in CAB F21 (StuZ)

During the social courses, we will teach you the basics of ballroom dancing. Ballroom dances are partner dances that are mainly popular in Europe and consist of two categories: Standard and Latin.

What you are going to learn

With Samba, you are going to learn one new Latin dance. Additionally, we will learn the reverse turn in Viennese Waltz and introduce new figures for Tango, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive.

Great teachers! It is the Basics. To make progress and not to forget everything in a week, you have to exercisse at home with the vidoes provided. Or take advantage of the sessions on friday.

I highly recommend this course, beginners and people who had prior experience all seemed to profit and have a good time. The teachers are competent and very friendly.

Sehr guter Kurs und Lehrpersonen. Gehen indivuell auf die Teilnehmer ein. Passen das Tempo der Gruppe an. Geben viele Freiheiten, was gelernt bzw. repetiert wird.

Great teaching !

A steep learning curve from Ballroom 2 to Ballroom 3 through the addition of Quickstep and Viennese Waltz, but with the help of Irina and Tim it was manageable. Their patience and elaborate explanations helped immensly! Looking forward to their Ballroom 4 course :)
